Last fall, a national poll revealed that just two-in-ten of young adults in America consider themselves as “active” in the political sphere. And during the 2016 election, just 41 percent of millennials aged 18-29 were sure they’d hit the voting lines.

It’s no secret that millennials are a bit more self-interested than most, particularly when it comes to engaging in politics as a “civic duty”—just ask Forbes. But guess what, comrades: election day (Nov. 6) is upon us, and it’s time to turn this sh*t around.
